£20.99 – Blue Coloured Vinyl LP w/ Hologram Insert
AURORA (Aurora Aksnes) third album A Different Kind Of Human – Step 2 forms the second part of last year’s surprise release; the critically acclaimed Infections Of A Different Kind (2018). A more experimental album than its predecessors, it is a record that finds AURORA focusing on the ecological crisis and the consequences of the rampant individualism so prevalent in society.
Sonically, AURORA wanted this album to be more “explosive and noisy” than her previous releases, representing how her life has changed over the last two years. Ironically, the record was created in a more lo-fi space than before, over the course of a month.
“The recording of Infections… was very elaborate – the location (a French chateau) was huge and beautiful and dreamy, I was far away and you can hear it. For this record I wanted to make it a very tiny room with a purple floor and dark blue walls, and it was just me and my drummers”.
